    So I've got my PSP 3000 with 6.60 PRO-C2 installed.

    My goal is to play my emulators on my big screen via my component cable, which I can do just fine; however, it's severely letter-boxed similar to the image below

    [​IMG]

    My television cannot zoom in enough to compensate for this.

    I've tried following a video which instructed me to install tempAR plugin, which I did; however, he then shows a 'graphics' setting which I cannot seem to locate in the plugin.

    Also for a emulator like SNES 9x, I cannot even get to the plugin screen to come up at all.

    Anyways, in short, I want to play my emulators (NesterJ, Snes9xTYL, Master Boy and Picodrive) in full screen on my HD TV using my component cables on my CFW PSP 3000

    If anybody could let me know how to do this, I'd appreciate it greatly.

    You can do one of two things, install the FuSa SD plugin to enable full screen component, you can find all official version here or the version modified by neur0n here or you can install RemoteJoyLite and use the USB port, pass through a PC and connect to your TV with HDMI (or just use your monitor).

    The first option sounds a lot less painless, no?

    FuSa SD can be a bit tricky to set up, but if you get it to work then yes, it's superior in your case. :)

    Is any step by step guide available for setting up and getting emulators into full screen?

    Thanks

    There's lots of tutorials available on YouTube, they should serve you well. The only thing you need to remember is that the plugin will put your PSP under additional stress, so be sure to set your CPU/Memory frequency to the highest setting you can to avoid slowdown. ;)

    Can it cause functionality issues with emulators?

    I got the plugin installed and enabled; however, whenever I try to open up SNES9xTYL, NesterJ and Master Boy it just freezes on the PSP PlayStation Portable screen and it fades to black, nothing happens, it's done that twice and I've had to take the battery out in order to reboot.

    I tried disabling the plugin and things work fine now

    FuSA only works on 5.x CFW (official) or 6.39 ME CFW (Neuron version, will never work on PRO CFW), and it has severe slowdown.

    RemoteJoyLite would be a better option here, short of spending money on upscaler.

    What's the downside to remotejoylite ? I've seen people saying not to use it

    So say the release docs, hence me posting an alternative as well. I just noticed that the OP mentioned he's using PRO, my bad. ;)
    No downsides other than slight lag if your settings aren't right and the obvious downside of having to use a PC as a passthrough device. I've used it extensively, it's fit for purpose.

    So if your settings are set right, is there no lag?

    You will always experience some lag no matter what solution you use, even the native TV Out. It's not a substantial amount of lag, don't worry about it. ;)

    Can't seem to get remote joy to work :-/

    I have the plugins enabled on my psp, I connect via USB mode, boot up remote joy (the black window says 'Waiting') I click circle on PSP to disconnect USB mode and nothing happens, it doesn't boot up

    You need to have the USB Type-B driver installed, do you have it?

    This guide should help you set things up, just skip the streaming portion of the guide. ;)

    Question. Why not just emulate PSP games on PC and connect the PC to the TV?

    Okay, I have it working, but the quality looks like crap. Is there any way around that?

    Compatibility, performance, use of UMD's, wanting to use the PSP as the controller, wanting the genuine experience, there can be many reasons.
    Fiddle around with the settings, especially filtering. Remember, you're blowing up 480x272 to
    (likely) Full HD 1920x1080, it's going to be pixelated no matter what you do. You simply can't scale upwards without degrading the quality.

    But its possible to use the PSP as controller on PC and you could easily rip games to iso format.
    Now about the genuine experience idk... i mean if its the same controller and all.

    It's a matter of purism. Crawl the web for a couple of years and you'll notice people arguing over which revision of a system "sounds better" or "delivers better visuals", mention emulators and people like this will take your scalp. Emulation is a mean to an end, but it's not necessarily a go-to solution for many users. I myself prefer to use the original systems as well even though I could probably emulate 95% of my systems without breaking a sweat.
